Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) June 04, 2015
Senior Helpers®, one of the nation’s largest in-home senior care companies, announced today that it has become the exclusive in-home care sponsor of online caregiver resources for The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. The Michael J. Fox Foundation is the largest nonprofit funder of Parkinson’s disease research in the world and is dedicated to providing educational resources, including those that help families and organizations learn how to care for individuals living with Parkinson’s disease. Senior Helpers’ independently-owned franchised businesses hire and train caregivers across the country to help in the homes of seniors who live with a variety of conditions, including Parkinson’s disease.
“Sponsoring The Michael J. Fox Foundation is a perfect fit for what we do,” said Chris Buitron, Vice President of Marketing for Senior Helpers. “One of our most important causes is to train caregivers so they can help seniors remain in their homes even though they are living with conditions such as Parkinson’s disease. Helping The Michael J. Fox Foundation enhance resources that provide guidance for caregivers is right in line with our priorities.”
The Michael J. Fox Foundation will use the sponsorship to enhance its existing caregiver resources web page and related content that is shared on its blog and social media channels. The resources web page helps families and organizations understand how Parkinson’s disease affects families and relationships, and provides content to help these individuals understand the course of action that may be best for them. Included in these resources are a “Caregiver Guide,” which includes educational content and recommendations for caregivers, and an “Ask the MD” short video that shares quick tips from a medical professional for caregivers who help individuals living with Parkinson’s disease.
The enhanced caregiver resources will be located on michaeljfox.org in the “Understanding Parkinson’s” section of the website. People can learn more about Senior Helpers and their focus on Parkinson’s disease and other conditions by visiting SeniorHelpers.com/Services.
